Facebook Live has opened up a whole new avenue for Online Parties for Direct Sellers. Facebook’s Live allows live-streaming video on Pages, Profiles, Groups, and even Events! There are many benefits to both the Consultant and the Hostess for an event like this, and now Online Parties can be run even easier at any time, from anywhere, with just a few days notice. Read below to learn how to utilize and maximize Online Parties with Facebook Live with your Home Party Plan Business!
Online parties are beneficial and convenient for both the Party Plan Consultant AND the Party Plan Hostess. For starters, a Hostess will not have to really “Host” anything – meaning no pressure to clean the house, get a babysitter, cook hors d’oeuvres, etc. A Hostess can earn the same free rewards without having to do quite as much of the “work.” It is convenient for her guests as well who do not have to drive to the party – meaning she can invite even her long distance friends and family.
Likewise, the Party Plan Consultant can do the party from the comfort of her own home, opening up endless opportunities for long distance parties, multiple simultaneous parties, and more. In fact, with an Online Party, you have the option to have a Hostess or not – you can “Hostess” your own party just as easily. Plus using a platform like Facebook Live gives you the opportunity to really connect with new potential customers, hostesses, and team members.
The “LIVE” portion of your Facebook Live is like your presentation portion of an in-home party. Like with a live presentation you want to make sure that you stay aware of people’s time and keep them engaged. You will want to start with a short intro, Your I Story, the Three Ways to Get Involved with your business, and then choose just a couple of your favorite products to show. You want to make sure you have this organized before the event so that it flows easily and keeps you more comfortable behind the camera. Facebook recommends you stay live for at least 10 minutes to get more viewers, and you can stay live for up to 90 minutes.
